Very clean hotel, friendly, helpful staff, especially in the dining room; Daria, who greeted us for every meal, and Thomas and Dimitris, who made sure we had a table overlooking the sea each time. It's a big hotel, spread over a large site on a hill, so lots of steep climbs, but the views make it worth it. Some of the blocks of accommodation have their own "private" pool, and our 2nd floor room had a ladder leading from our balcony straight into our pool. There are several other pools, so always somewhere different to sit. The beach is a bit disappointing, as the sunbeds and parasols are all very close together, and the "sand" is more like grit. 70% of the guests were Russian; they can be a bit pushy, and not at all friendly, but we did meet a few other British guests. I'd say this hotel is great for families and couples - if you're looking for night life, you need to go into Kardemena, as this hotel is part of a complex of about 5 hotels a couple of miles out of town. The buses are not very frequent.
The wind, which was present most days, kept the temperature very pleasant.
Food was ok, not excellent, but we could always find something we liked. All drinks were included, and were not limited to local spirits. Nice cocktails in the main bar! Tea and coffee available all day too. For a bit more luxury, the Mitsis Blue Domes, on the same site, offers a beautiful spa, and from what we saw is a superior hotel.
